The Dance

An open heart is the portal to the eyes to the soul. When we begin to see and feel through the eyes of the soul we connect to the oneness of the universe and become, not merely an onlooker, but an active participant, a creative force performing with and fully integrated within the magnificent, cosmic dance of life. ~ Mary Anne Byrne

A Quote by Thomas Merton on spirituality

“Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul. For just as the wind carries thousands of winged seeds, so each moment brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptibly in the minds and wills of men. Most of these unnumbered seeds perish and are lost, because men are not prepared to receive them: for such seeds as these cannot spring up anywhere except in the good soil of freedom, spontaneity and love. – Thomas Merton

Winter is a Magical Time

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ― Edith Sitwell

Winter Cocoa

Winter is officially here, creeping into our bones after snowball fights and the making of the snowman. Though far from simply the doom and gloom of bitter cold days and dark evenings, winter is a magical time to spend with family and friends, spend evenings nestled by log fires with mugs of hot chocolate and chestnuts in hand.


Look for a Star

When life doesn’t seem worth the living
and you don’t really care who you are
when you feel there is no one beside you
look for a star

When you know you’re alone and so lonely
and your friends have travelled afar
there is someone waiting to guide you
look for a star

Oh everyone has a lucky star
that shines in the sky up above
if you wish on a lucky star
you’re sure to find someone to love

A rich man man, a poor man, a beggar
no matter whoever you are
there’s a friend who’s waiting to guide you
look for a star

A rich man, a poor man, a beggar
no matter whoever you are
there’s a friend who’s waiting to guide
look for a star.

Adoring the Light

The progress of our soul is like a perfect poem. It has an infinite idea which once realised makes all movements full of meaning and joy.  ~ Rabindranath Tagore

Autumn Stroll

Mother Nature never fails to grab our attention with her beautiful painting of scenery the beauty the flood of light, leaves splashed with every sharp shade that nature can bestow.  Autumn leaves, yellow, green, orange rich colors swirl around me,

Which road do I choose?

Autumn’s approaching, we love to see the trees and all their colors in this season.
